I had my 65 on car skates in the garage once. Moved it around on them and now when you look down the side...there are 2 indentations where my hands where when I was moving it. One day I'll pull the interior panels and press them back out you can only see them in certain conditions.

Wow, I certainly would not expect that.

To be honest, if you have fresh paint, chances are it isn't fully cured yet. That means that now is the optimum time to do your leaning/sitting Think about it, if your paint is still somewhat soft/hasn't completely hardened, it will have a little more flex (or give) to it than it would if it were a fully cured paint-job (think brittle). That said, I'd still choose a spot that is rather structurally sound (Center of your [m]*** on the hood directly above the hood bumpers, for instance, would work). I frequently sit on the edge of my fenders, hood, and quarterpanels, and the world hasn't ended yet.

If you really want to sit on your vehicle, get something with a tail gate.

OK, I'll chime in. I remember when i was 16 back in 1974 at a crowded 7 11 parking lot where all the guys and cars hung out, ( you could buy beer there at 18 ) one of the neighborhood older guys had bought a new red pontiac ventura we were all checking out. i was leaning against the quarter panel.he was pretty cool, but had come back from vietnam the year prior and was known to have a bit of a temper. Anyways, when he came back out and saw me leaning against his car, he asked me very seriously if something was wrong with my legs. I thought he was really just asking me and I said no, why?? Well, he said, then if I ever find you leaning against my car again I am gonna break them.......I have never leaned or sat on any bodys car since then, even my own.

Yes. Though I like the John Deere paint scheme.

You could sit anywhere on this one and you would be doing it a favor:
